Vertical stripes create a fun, engaging pattern. Ribbing creates a bouncy fabric that is reversible and cozy.

Pattern is written for Fingering Weight and DK (or light worsted weight) yarn. This is easy to size up or down depending on your yarn. A photo tutiorial is included on the last page for changing colors.

Even tested by a friend of mine who is a novice knitter and was her first time using Intarsia (this type of color changing).
